Brief Summary

NHS England's Patient and Public Voice team hosted the third Gender Identity Workshop on 20th March 2014. The audience consisted of Commissioners, Clinicians, Trans people and Voluntary & Community Sector Organisations. There was approximately 80 people in total, 70% of the room was from the Trans community.

The workshop was kicked off by a short film highlighting excellent practice with Trans people working with a CCG to improve services in Hertfordshire – the team were shortlisted in the Excellence in Participation Awards.

Following this, the rest of the morning focused the work that has been done on the overall review of transgender services (led by Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, CQC and Maggie Morgan- Cooke, Programme Director NHS Improving Quality) and the work of the Clinical reference group (led by Steve Hamer and John Dean). 

The afternoon session focused on 3 workshops:

  1. Clinical Reference Group – further discussion on priorities  (John Dean, Steve Hamer, Ruth Beattie)
  2. Children and Young People (Polly Carmichael, Aedan Wolton, (Mermaids) Rosie Ayub)
  3. General Practice – Role of supporting trans people (Steve Field and Emma Easton)

The summary session included feedback from each of the workshop as well as a general discussion about next steps.
